g.ho.st is a virtual computer service that has recreated the desktop in your browser window.
With g.ho.st, you can do pretty much anything you can do on your computer’s desktop, from document management to playing games. The service is obviously great for people that travel a lot, or students that frequently use community computers. Of all the virtual computer services I’ve seen, this one is among the ones that look and feel the most like a computer desktop. g.ho.st is still a work in progress, in their very early beta, so it can be a bit slow at times. But g.ho.st has some potential.
i tried (still trying) this out and it seems like a great idea. so far the usability is pretty limited but hey, its in alpha now. otherwise, i cant wait for more new features to be implemented. i am a portable app junkie and this makes life alot easier with public computers and its powered thru the web browser (firefox and IE) so its crossplatform ability is a huge plus! Mashable has a great review of this new virtual desktop.
